This week's Best New Listings includes two rowhouses made into one, a rustic-feeling house in Chevy Chase and a Silver Spring home with sunny living spaces. ​​


Two Rowhomes Made Into One on the Hill

Two neighboring Capitol Hill rowhomes were purchased years ago and conjoined into this modern-day listing, complete with open living spaces and a sunny courtyard. The main floor includes a wide living room that connects the front and back of the home, and a kitchen with wooden countertops and bright blue cabinets. The primary suite runs the length of the home, and includes lots of closet space and an en-suite bathroom that features a stone soaking tub and separate shower area. The unusually large backyard includes two lots worth of greenery for privacy, as well as pathways and a patio.

A Rustic Chevy Chase Home

This two-story listing has a rustic feel, thanks to the use of natural wood tones and a forest green color scheme. The primary level includes a semi-open floor plan with dark green walls, a brick fireplace, arched windows and access to a balcony overlooking the yard. A secondary living area offers a combined dining room and living area that includes a wood-burning fireplace and planked wooden walls. Skylights brighten the formal dining/sun room and a sliding glass door leads to the back patio, which features a small waterfall and flagstone details.

Two Stories in Silver Spring 

UrbanTurf's favorite part of this Silver Spring home is the expansive living room, which doubles as a sunroom and includes two sets of French doors that lead to the front porch and back patio area. A large wrap-around kitchen has light blue cabinetry and a breakfast area, and an additional living room on the main floor features a fireplace and overhead wooden beams for architectural intrigue. Previously attic space, the top floor was converted into a primary suite with a sizeable walk-in closet and full bathroom. The semi-finished basement has lots of storage space and room for a workout studio.
